Each new dragon has its own personality. That’s what’s happening now in our last part of the animation – we’re applying personal character traits to each of the dragons. One of them has a (bad) leg. Another is much more like an eagle, because it’s a bit neurotic. And another is like a curmudgeonly old grandmother”, explained Saponinick.
